I am using an Arduino Uno and have used up all it's pins so I have plugged up a Nano to a couple of the Uno's pins and using the Uno's 5v and ground to power the Nano. Is this ok?
It's been working fine until recently. My Uno will no longer allow me to upload code but everything still powers fine and runs on the existing code I had uploaded before. The reset button on the Uno does not work so I assume it's bricked, but it does still operate fine on the code it has, as I said.
Anyway, my question, is it ok to run the Nano like this? Is it using too much of the Uno's current... because the Nano's pins are also all being used. I'm no good at regulating current and just want to make sure that the Nano isn't eating up a bunch of current from the Uno by lighting it's LED's and it's other operations.
